Biographical Sketch of Francisco (Paco) Arumí-Noe, 1940-2005

Francisco Arumí-Noe was a physicist, educator, and computer software developer. Known for his innovative work in the analysis and simulation of energy use in buildings, he developed the DEROB (Dynamic Energy Response of Buildings) system of computer programs to simulate the passive solar heating and cooling of buildings. The US Department of Energy designated DEROB as a standard for determining building energy performance. In addition, he worked on the integration of 3D solid graphics modeling with the energy analysis of buildings, which culminated in his development of the MUSES software codes.

Born in Valparaiso, Chile on February 4, 1940, Arumí-Noe was raised in Quito, Ecuador and was naturalized in the United States in 1965. Beginning in 1962 he spent the next nine years as student, researcher and instructor with an emphasis on plasma physics. Arumí-Noe earned his Ph.D. from the University of Texas in 1970. The following year he made a transition from physics to architecture and became an assistant professor at the School of Architecture, advancing to associate and ultimately full professor. He remained at this institution for the remainder of his career which spanned over three decades.

An innovative and enthusiastic educator, he taught both basic courses based on principle and methods in architecture as well as developing a more advanced range of courses including topics such as computer modeling and energy performance. He also assisted graduate students in advanced individualized research. He was awarded the Texas Exes Excellence in Teaching Award in 1990. Arumí-Noe supervised the creation of both the graduate degree programs in Design with Climate and the Computer and Energy Studies. He was also responsible for supervising the creation of the Numerical Simulation Laboratory, where DEROB was developed.

In addition to his full and vigorous career as an instructor, Arumí-Noe was dedicated to the analysis and simulation of energy use in buildings long before research in this area became popular. He was responsible for developing computer software which simulated dynamic passive solar heating and cooling. DEROB became the national standard for determining building energy performance. It was tested and calibrated under the sponsorship of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratories. The Lund Institute of Technology in Sweden was responsible for refining and launching a new version of the software in the early 1980s.

Arumí-Noe's international recognition extended further than the success of DEROB. He was a Fulbright Scholar conducting research in Bangladesh, Colombia, and Ecuador. He also served on the editorial board of the international research journal, Energy and Buildings, a publication dedicated to the application of energy efficiency.

He continued to teach at the University of Texas until his death in Austin, Texas on September 16, 2005. According to the fond remembrance of a friend, "he enjoyed his coffee strong, his cigarettes unfiltered, and he could really tear up the dance floor."

Scope and Content of the collection

This collection represents Arumí-Noe's work as a faculty member of the University of Texas at Austin's School of Architecture from 1970 until 2006. Most of the papers date to the period between 1973 and 1984. Materials relating to Arumí-Noe's professional work include presentations, energy design conference materials, research notes covering a broad range of scientific and architectural topics, consulting reports for organizations outside The University of Texas, and both published and unpublished works authored by Arumí-Noe.

Faculty papers consist of materials associated with Arumí-Noe's tenure at The University of Texas School of Architecture. Materials in this series comprise of course descriptions, school directories, syllabi lecture notes, overhead projector transparencies, Fortran cards, and teaching tools. Papers submitted by students, including theses, exams, and homework assignments, are also present.

Also included are materials that document Arumí-Noe's main research interests: passive solar energy, heating and cooling efficiency, dynamic heat conduction, and thermal inertia. During the years of energy crisis that followed the oil embargo of 1973, Arumí-Noe was at the vanguard of research and development on computer aided design (CAD) and passive solar design strategies. His meticulous and longstanding work on DEROB (Dynamic Energy Response of Building) is well documented in this collection. Arumí-Noe developed the DEROB system of programs over several years beginning in 1972, first as a teaching and research aid for the understanding of the thermal response of buildings, then eventually as an analytical tool designed more for professional applications by architects and engineers. With the assistance of colleagues at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, and with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Arumí-Noe conducted validation studies to measure the accuracy of the DEROB heat transfer algorithm against empirical data collected from ten different structures. The ramifications of his work meant that architects could effectively use the DEROB system, or others like it, to predict operating costs and simulate the energy performance of buildings. This collection records the evolution of the DEROB system and its component programs through subroutines, notes, and data pertaining to tests done on the energy efficiency of various building materials, expressed in plots, drawings, and diagrams. Documentation and manuals for the related computer simulation programs ALKAZAM, DYNWALB, and MUSES are also contained within the collection.

Although most of the collection is paper-based, some photographs, slides, audio cassette tapes, and transparencies are present. Correspondence is found throughout the collection, and note has been made of where it had been inserted into notebooks and binders. Correspondents include Jeff Christian of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, S. R. Hastings, Roger C. Ruggli and G.-R. Perrin of EMPA (Eidgenössische Materialprüfungs und Versuchsanstalt, or Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research), Mildred Geshwiler of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. (ASHRAE), R. D. McFarland of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, and several administrators and professors in the School of Architecture as well as of the wider university.

Many of the materials contained within this collection are printed subroutines, manuscript calculations, or data charts, and therefore offer little context as to their creation. A glossary of terms and titles was created for referencing descriptions of the software, program, and subroutine names found in this finding aid. Descriptions are provided, when available, in the spreadsheet found attached to this finding aid (.pdf).

Glossary of Terms and Titles [pdf format]

This record group came to the archive in two separate acquisitions over a four year period from 2007 to 2011. After Arumí-Noe's death, the School of Architecture removed and stored the papers from his vacated office. This collection was arranged in two parts in Spring 2012 and 2013 but were combined in Fall 2014.


Arrangement

The Francisco Arumí-Noe Papers are arranged into four series: Personal Papers; Faculty Papers; Computer Programs and Software; and Research and Reference Materials. Papers in Arumí-Noe's office were removed after his sudden death and stored by the School of Architecture before being transferred to the archive. Whenever possible the original order and file titles have been kept. In the case of files left untitled or misleadingly labeled, explanatory titles appear within brackets. Correspondence is included in the collection interfiled according to its subject. An effort has been made to highlight correspondents and their letters in the appropriate series abstract. Arrangement within the series and subseries is generally alphabetical by key word. The Professional Papers series is arranged chronological by year with undated material last.
